How To Use the DNS Plugin

This plugin works against the DNS provider. It is assumed that you have already setup an account and created the DNS zone(s) you will be working against.


Using the API requires only your account name or account number and API Key which can be found in your Control Panel on the Account page.

Using the Plugin

Your account name/number is used with the SimplyAccount parameter. The API key is used with the SimplyAPIKey SecureString parameter.


The SimplyAPIKeyInsecure parameter is deprecated and will be removed in the next major module version. If you are using it, please migrate to the Secure parameter set.

$pArgs = @{
    SimplyAccount = 'S123456'
    SimplyAPIKey = (Read-Host 'Enter Key' -AsSecureString)
